We no longer perform repeat prescriptions by telephone, we apologise for this inconvenience.

When will my Prescription be Ready?

Please allow 48 hours (two working days) before picking up the prescription or 7 days if sending a stamped self-addressed envelope.

Due to the above order lead times, please remember to order more tablets of medicine well before you run out.

Collecting your prescription

You can usually collect your prescription from the pharmacy 3 to 5 working days after you have ordered it.

You will need to choose a pharmacy to collect your prescription from. We call this nominating a pharmacy.

You can change your nominated pharmacy at any time:

  • on the app or website where you order repeat prescriptions
  • at your GP practice
  • at any pharmacy that accepts repeat prescriptions

Can I collect my Prescription from a Pharmacy?

Many of the local chemists will pick up and deliver prescriptions to you. Ask your chemist for details. The pharmacist may make a charge for this service.

Requests by Post

Tick the items you need on the computer generated slip attached to your previous prescription and post it to us. Please remember to enclose a SAE if you want us to send it back to you.

Alternatively, write your name and address and the name of the medicines you need on a slip of paper, remembering to include the strength, dose and total quantity you require and post it to us.

Medication Review

After a set interval or number of prescriptions, the doctor may ask you to make an appointment for a review of medication.

Questions about your prescription

If you have questions about your medicine, your local pharmacists can answer these. They can also answer questions on medicines you can buy without a prescription.
